Seattle-based artist, TeZaTalks, opens portals. She points a finger and colorful wave glimmers grows. Suddenly a window of song is stretched open. TeZaTalks sings a note and a universe blossoms like a pink-purple rainforest orchid. Each is a route to a new realm of expression, energies. Each is a lesson to absorb, to find yourself within again. To walk through with refreshed skin and a renewed heart. Her passion dwarfs nuclear fission. Her soul is elastic like lungs. Regeneration is the name of her game. Shields are broken and must be mended. In this way, the personal traumas TeZaTalks has endured along the way have led directly to her millions of song streams. To date, TeZaTalks has played coveted sets for SoFar Sounds, KEXP’s in-studio series, Seattle’s Upstream and Capitol Hill Block Party festivals, and AfroPunk. She has been featured prominently by publications like EDM.com, American Songwriter Magazine, Trap Nation, and Xkito. TeZaTalks, who has also played the famed Showbox stage in Seattle and has been featured on popular Spotify playlists, landed in the Pacific Northwest after leaving her hometown of Oahu. In the same way that she found the Emerald City through travel, so did she find her creative self through exploration. But identity can be tricky, paradoxical. The clearer we are to ourselves, the more complexity abounds. And this is the essence of the sonic interplay of TeZaTalks. The genre-bending artist will challenge you but only by breathing in you new life.
